Find the tracking and analytics alternative that is right for you
Dear Data-Traveller, please note that this is a Linkedin-Remix.
I posted this content already on Linkedin in February 2022, but I want to make sure it doesn´t get lost in the social network abyss.
For your accessibility-experience and also for our own content backup, we repost the original text here.
Have a look, leave a like if you like it, and join the conversation in the comments if this sparks a thought!
Last week I started to create an open directory with analytics alternatives.
Now I have the v0.5 ready and the first alternative is added: Snowplow
When you check the Github repo, you will see that I try to apply a simple knowledge graph (at the moment as simple yaml file).
Link is in the comment.
A lot of stuff needs to be done. Especially would love to have someone from Snowplow checking over the data I added for them – asking my Snowplow contacts: Rob Edwards, Michael Bracklo, Kyle Usselman, Will Stolton, Gareth Evans, Paul Boocock, George Lynch, Eddie May, James McMullan and surly anyone else with extensive Snowplow knowledge.
Also for the Snowplow people – I would love to do two sessions with someone of you:
– a podcast/vidcast about the history, the design principles, the unique selling points, the future, the company culture
– a hands on video where we go together into your managed offer and show how you do and manage your setup, so everyone can get a first idea how it is like to work in Snowplow – I will ask the beginner questions
Also write me when you have feedback about the structure and the criteria we add.
When you are amazing, you create a new pull request in the repo with your changes, but DM is fine too. But remember, Git becomes a foundation when working in data.
And I also created a simply website for the alternatives based on GitBook – Basic, but ok for starters. (Link in comment).
Next first versions of other alternatives are coming.
